My Students

A child's first grade year is so exciting! They know how the whole school thing works and they come in ready to learn how to read and become mathematicians. In our class of 20 students, we have a wonderful mix of backgrounds that add to the sparkle in our room.

Witnessing their understanding grow of how letters and numbers work is magical!

Students are on different levels of understanding but they are growing and that's what matters. Giving them the tools and resources to help them be all they can be and reach their potential is an important goal of mine!

My Project

250... That's how many students have used and loved our carpet. We have had many amazing breakthroughs in learning on our carpet. We have read hundreds of books and played hundreds of learning games. All of this daily use has left our well loved carpet dingy and dirty with stains that the hardest scrubbing won't take out.

We want to continue these special times on our carpet but we need your help!

We need to retire our well used carpet and purchase a new one but all of our money this year has been allocated for tools that we will need in the event that we spend time time learning digitally. I want to believe that one day school will be back to normal and my students will be able to come to the carpet to laugh and learn like we always have.
